The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has refuted reports suggesting a fake COVID-19 result was issued to the Secretary-General of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTFA), Wamkele Mene, at the Kotoka International Airport.
According to AfCTFA, its secretary-general would participate in public events despite the airport results coming out positive, stressing after two independent PCR tests he was confirmed negative.
However, in a statement, the GHS said since the reopening of the Kotoka International Airport in September last year, a series of measures have been rolled out to reduce further importation of COVID-19 cases into the country.
The GHS explained that the measures for testing of COVID-19 has been applied to everyone who enters or leave Ghana irrespective of their status or position.
It has therefore asked the AfCFTA to ensure its secretary-general remains in isolation for the next seven days in line with the “mandatory isolation period and is discharged as per the COVID-19 protocols.”
